BFPO and Op Telic 11

What can i say the BFPO system sucks!!

Post is taking forever...and tell me how can they get a parcel here in two days and on the same day deliver one that was posted 8 weeks ago.

You cant email them on the site to give them rock all, maybe because so many people are affected by their incompetance.

A parcel turned up today for a person that they sent on 3rd december and they went home 3 weeks ago. Today Someone in my department got a parcel posted 3 days before reciept and one posted over a month ago. And im still waiting for one from 4th december and one from 2 weeks ago.

What bloody use is a christmas parcel from home to anyone in January i ask my self...absolutly none at all


Rant over :x :x :x :x
My wife use to send me the statutory bottle of vodka in a metal flask each week with no problems on Telic 3, I also had a nice side line in used empty flasks.
I rang BFPO to find out the BFPO no for my wfes location told them where she is, and they said there isn't one for there, I said Camp Souter? no not one for there, I said how about the rest of 'Stan replied not sure. Perhaps she has left me for a younger man.
Hope springs enternal
I dont know if its true but I've heard that BFPO are getting investigated about how they are handling the mail!

I could of been told a load of cr@p though
Mate of mine was the OC of Postal & Courier Sqn in KAF last year and he told me everything is X-rayed - in and out - so best not to try it on with anything blindingly obvious. They will also open it up and remove said item before moving it on providing its not something spectacularly daft like weapons, etc in which case you can expect a visit from your local friendly simians.
